Do they have the best linebacker core in the country with Cushing, Galippo, Maualuga, and Rivers? If not ever?

You're gonna get flack for including Galippo, but yeah, they have the best LB's this year.

I think 2005 FSU Ernie Sims - Buster Davis - AJ Nicholson w/ Lawrence Timmons - Geno Hayes - DJ Nicholson on the bench was just as talented as this year's USC bunch.

Cushing, Magulaga, Rivers are amazingly talented and are surefire first rounders... whos the fourth tho, i know u said galipno but he aint playing theyre stacked but if they play a 3-4 whos expected to be the fourth starter? Luthur Brown?

Best this year? Yes. However, not even the best in the last 5 years.

Bobby Carpenter, Aj Hawk, and Anthony Schlegel dominated like no other trio in recent history. And their draft positions speak for themselves..


Keep an eye out for OSU's lb class in another few years too.


Thad Gibson, Ross Homan, and Tyler Moeller are going to be incredible once the current guys graduate.

Considering the backups of those 3 are Luther Brown,Chris Gallipo,Josh Tatum, Thomas Williams,Clay Matthews and possibly Allen Bradford it's easily one of the best of all time.

And Gstock, if Rey and Brian stay, next years group will blow past that trio of OSU's.

lets not include incoming freshman. even though i am a usc fan i think that including players yet to play is like counting eggs that haven't hatched. as soon as he plays a game i wouldn't mind including galippo, until then lets leave it at rivers, cushing, malaluga. and are we really switching to the 4-3? if not who is going to get the starting lb spot?

Yes the elephant D is gone, so SC is a all 4-3. However I will feel free to add Galippo. He's the most college ready linebacker I have ever seen come out of high school. He dominated against the best at the AAA bowl and showed he is a student of the game as well.

Cushing, Rivers and Maluluga, are seriously the best linebacking corps in the country this year without question. Not to mention how much depth they have behind them. Teams will not want to run the ball against them. All 3 of those starters can be 1st round picks

The reason USC is switching back to the 4-3 is cuz they were underutilizing players llike cushing and l. jackson's talent

i can't wait for cushing to come out next year, i really want the niners to get him if they don't draft a guy this year

Yeah, he would fit in better in a 3-4 than a 4-3 because his size, strength, and his lack of hip mobility.

Laurinaitis will have graduated by the time Homan, Gibson, and Moeller are starting.


And by the way, I like USC's linebacking trio, but every year someone says that such and such player will be better than such and such. Most of the time it never happens. And especially with the linebacking position, it's about a lot more than just athleticism. USC's guys have it, but I'll wait and see if they have the instincts as well. Not saying they dont have the ability however.
